Shocker Internet Drive In - Week 39: "Cheap Corman Thrills" Double Feature
Well as summer heats up and winds down, we thought some good old cheap thrills might be in order. And, who else is the master of cheap and thrills than the great Roger Corman.
Run time 180 minutes 31 secondsAudio/Visual sound, color
That's right! We are happy to bring you another classic Corman double feature. First up, after some coming attractions from Roger and a Bugs Bunny cartoon, we proudly present 1961's "Creature From The Haunted Sea" - an off-beat comedy with one of the worst looking monsters ever committed to film stock. Then, after a brief intermission, we present 1959's "The Wasp Woman" - Corman's female answer to the fly (with a cameo from Roger himself!)
As always we invite you to bring (almost) the whole family and don't forget to visit our snackbar for lots of great food, soda, popcorn and candy. Oh, and remember to turn right when you leave the good ol' Shocker Internet Drive In!

Corman's Bargain Basement Monsters
Generally I like the early Roger Corman pictures, his monsters are usually pretty ridiculous. Particularly the one from "Creature", which looks like someone covered Homer Simpson in seaweed, then told him the actors were tasty ("mmmmm, hammmm....."). And Cabot's Wasp Woman is particularly silly, despite the fact the rest of the movie is actually pretty good.
